Holding onto Your Independence at Home

•Paid Post• A few months ago Ed, my mum, the kids and I were holidaying in nearby Somerset when we witnessed an elderly gentleman trip and fall over, hitting his head and badly cutting open his hand in the process.

On our way to work, doing the school run, even just nipping to the shops.  Yet every year we somehow seem shocked at how absolutely freezing it can get in England in the winter months. Dealing with the cold when we’re out and about is unavoidable, but there is nothing worse than coming home...

Restyling my Bedroom with Beautify

I have been working hard on our bedroom to make it feel comfortable and welcoming for us as the cold, dark evenings draw in. Recently we changed our mattress and, since then, I’ve been adding little touches to the room to make it as welcoming as our bed. Living in rented accommodation can make it a little challenging to create a space that feels your own, but it is possible...
